Director of Advocacy and Policy
Renata Rendón, Director of Policy and Advocacy, is responsible for guiding the Enough Project’s analysis and policy recommendations, developing public policy materials, and implementing comprehensive advocacy strategies.
Prior to joining the Enough Project, Rendón was based in Pakistan and traveled throughout Asia and the Middle East with the International Rescue Committee, or IRC. In her time with IRC, Rendón provided advocacy, policy, and research guidance with a focus on refugees and internally displaced persons in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and Myanmar.
Rendón also worked with Refugees International and Amnesty International USA where she was responsible for U.S. government outreach. During her tenure with Amnesty International USA, she co-authored a report documenting noncompliance of the U.S. government in Colombia with the “Leahy Law.” This report resulted in the first-ever internal State Department review of its vetting process on the eligibility of foreign security forces to receive U.S. assistance based on human rights indicators.
She also spearheaded advocacy that resulted in the largest single increase in U.S. government appropriations to the Indian Health Service and Bureau of Indian Affairs to increase health care and law enforcement respectively for American Indians and Alaska Natives.
